As an elementary school student, I would often sit in the classroom thinking “If I was the teacher. . . I would do that differently!” As a teacher, for over 15 years, that seems to be one of the forces that drives me “How can I teach that, present that, rearrange that, better?” I’m always looking for new ideas to enrich a child’s life to help them reach their potential. In my classroom where there is a will there is a way. Many times I do things that are probably too crazy, too messy, too time consuming, too funny, too noisy, for most, but the important thing is the students are having fun, and they are learning without even knowing it. Sometimes the students themselves give me great ideas for things to do, and I try to incorporate them into our day. I guess I’m just a big student that is always looking for an opportunity to be taught.
